Storyline

A high-class call girl kills a customer in self-defense. To avoid scandal, her parents try to have her declared mentally incompetent. Not helping matters is that she is very distrustful of everybody, including her court-appointed attorney, and is very disruptive during her court hearings. Written by Tony Berkoff <aberkoff@hq.caci.com>

Trivia

According to the book 'Barbra: An Actress Who Sings' by 'James Kimbrell', Streisand did not really promote the picture at all bar doing a three-part interview with film critic Gene Shalit on the Today (1952) show and participating in a press conference when the movie launched internationally in foreign (non-USA) territories.

Psychologically entrancing
27 March 2000 | by (Wash,DC) – See all my reviews

This movie is very psychological and emotional. The realism of Claudia's abuse as a child and its effects on her life as an adult is very heart-wrenching. It made me so furious to see Claudia's helplessness in a fight against the judicial system and her wealthy parents. It is depressing to see just how far the power of money can take us as a society - free killers and lock up (in this case institutionalise) the innocent. It is even more terrifying to know what kind of "licensed professionals" get to judge people's "mental capacity." This movie shows that there is still some hope and justice in the world.
